Cyprus is mythical, mountainous and sometimes misunderstood, with its reputation for parties and package tours. However, you only need to take a few steps away from its resort towns to embark on a journey into a landscape that was blessed by ancient Greek gods, and still feels otherworldly. On our Cyprus tours, explore the Troodos Mountains, the island’s largest range, a landscape peppered with juniper, ancient olive and black pine trees, snow-capped peaks and coastal joys such as the Akamas Peninsula.
The word ‘Cyprus’ comes from the Greek word for copper, as it was mined here as far back as the Bronze Age. It’s a perfect name for Cyprus, however, as one of the qualities of copper is that it’s a great conductor of heat and electricity. Not only are you walking in pleasant heat between March and October, the buzz you get from the likes of Madari Mountain or the Artemis and Adonis Trails is always electric.
